House Rules: Onboarding

When we bring people onto our team, it is important to communicate the idiosyncrasies of the team culture. A team is a family. Every family has a set of house rules. The house rules are rarely written down anywhere. They take at least a few months for new teammates to catch on to. Even then, they may not catch the whole code of secret ethics. Great teams do a good job of onboarding their new recruits so they feel welcomed and a part of the team sooner than if they are left to fit in all by themselves.
